 thanks, but that's not what I'm looking for.  dptutil is not available in 
 the package source, which is the problem.  dptutil is not available anywhere 
 that I can find.  It's a userland app, and therefore should have no 
 dependencies, but I can't find the source code.
 all I need is a URL to the source code for dptutil. I'm not using pkgsrc, 
 I'm using a Sun E450 sparc64 and need to compile under that architecture.  
 That box does not have internet access at this time, so I have to copy to CD 
 and install from there.  The box that I am using for the net is Mandrake 
 10.1 not a bsd.  I should be able to simply go to an FTP site, find the 
 source and download that package individually, not bundled with a hundred 
 other apps.
 Learning linux and bsd is rather difficult enough as it is; one would think 
 that the task of being able to directly download code through FTP without 
 being constrained to use a helper app like pkgsrc should be pretty straight 
 thanks for any help.
